Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Fighting Services (Political Activities). (29 Feb 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: No; I do not think a mistake has been made. The question is not merely one of the difference between a naval officer and an officer in the Civil Service; the question is one between naval officers and naval ratings. Naval ratings cannot be placed on half-pay, and, therefore, if the Order is to be fair to all ranks in the Navy, I think you have to include half-pay officers, because there are...

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: I beg to move, That, in accordance with the Church of England Assembly (Powers) Act, 1919, this House do direct that the Prayer Book Measure, 1927, be presented to His Majesty for Royal Assent. In moving this Resolution, I am very conscious that I have no claim whatever to speak as a theologian, or as an authority on doctrine or on liturgies.

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: The hon. and gallant Gentleman, I believe, is going to speak later.[Interruption.] I asked him to say it. [HON. MEMBERS: "He said it!"] He will have to explain how it is contrary to the practices of 1662, and he will have an opportunity of doing it, I am not an expert in these things, but I am prepared to take the opinion of the Ecclesiastical Committee and the Archbishop of Canterbury....

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: I give him credit for more humane motives. The cause of Christianity desires that our forms of worship should be in harmony with modern thought and modern requirements. There are many organisations working in the Church, and with it, which did not exist in 1662. May we not pray for the success of their work? We want such breadth in our services that the realities of life may find expression...

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: Perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will allow me to deliver my own speech in my own way. This is the first chance of establishing that discipline in the Church. If it is rejected, those who carry on Romish practices will be left entirely unaffected, and by throwing out this Measure the people who want to strike at the extreme ritualist section will clean miss them and will be striking a...

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: I said that I could quite understand anybody who disliked the Church of England voting against this Measure. Those were the words I used. I am not blaming anybody. If I very much disliked the Church of England, I do not know why I should not vote against this Measure.

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: What am I to withdraw

Orders of the Day — Prayer Book Measure, 1927. (15 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: I never insinuated anything of the kind. What I did say was that I could quite understand if they voted against it, and I would give them credit for it. That is exactly what I said. I can understand many other people who hold extreme views on the subject voting against the Measure, and I could make allowance for them. I am not complaining on that score. There are many people of extreme views...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Ships (Construction). (14 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: With regard to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given to the question from the hon. Member for Devonport (Mr. Hore-Belisha) on the first of this month (OFFICIAL REPORT, cols. 732–4). I am not clear exactly what the hon. and gallant Member requires as regards the latter part of his question, since labour enters into the cost of hulls and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Ships (Construction). (14 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: The second part of the hon. Member's question is profoundly different from anything in his main question, but, if he will do the Admiralty the honour to look at the answer, he will see where the ships are and be able to count up for himself.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Cruiser Construction. (14 Dec 1927)

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Admiralty. (14 Dec 1927)

Mr William Bridgeman: The position has not materially altered since March last when, in reply to my hon. and gallant Friend, it was pointed out that, allowing for the fact that a large proportion of the Admiralty staffs belongs to the shipbuilding and engineering industries which were only allowed to volunteer for military service to a limited extent, the Admiralty percentage of ex-Service civil staff does not...
